well after looking for a long time, i finally found a diesel for a reasonable price. it is an '85 k30 6.2/400/205 60/14b combo with 4.10s and a trac-lock (gm gov lock?), (guy just completely rebuilt axles) it has a 1410 yoke off of an '05 3500, and has the 3500 driveshaft shortened to fit. the truck has 145k miles, has 8" susp lift and 3" body lift, with 39.5 boggers (worn) on 16.5x12 eagle alloys (MT classic copies). its got 2.5" straight pipes out near the stock location on both sides (90*), and the sob is LOUD to say the least. im going to put mufflers on it because it gives me a headache on the highway (along with the damn boggers ), but for now its going to have to stay as is. The truck needs a little TLC (needs rear main seal, and new driverside floorboard and rockerpanel/cab corner welded in, which i have already). it also has a 1/2" plate on the frame under the bed from where a 5th wheel used to be set up. the guy i bought it from didnt seem to know alot, he said that slipyoke was the way to go (idiot!) and swapped a slipyoke onto the 205. he also disconnected the vaccum line for the th400, and said that it wasnt necessary and that it shifted better because it would rev higher before shifting without it . i reattached the vaccum line and it shifts much better now. anyways, this truck is going to be built up for dd/trail warrior. i plans are to remove the 8" springs/blocks, install some slightly lifted 52's up front, shackle flip, 1" lift spring perches, 1" zero-rate, 1" body lift for around 7" lift total. im also going to change tranny's and t-cases, install a gm8 turbo setup, lockers and eventually chromoly shafts, h1's and 42 iroks. ive got most of the parts, and i supose ill make a build thread like everybody else in the not so distant future once i start turning wrenches. on to pics, let me know what you guys think.
